Top 50 Executive Allies Launch Event

What is the LGBT Great Top 50 Executive Allies? 

The Top 50 Executive Allies is a Project 1000 initiative. The Top 50 aims to recognise and celebrate senior leaders in financial services and business around the world, who have used their platform, influence, and role, to ally and sponsor the LGBT+ community. The recipients will be announced in June 2023 during global Pride Month.


Why is LGBT Great driving this important initiative? 

Allies help to create and build environments where talent from all backgrounds feel supported and empowered. Our ambition is to encourage more authentic and deliberate acts of allyship and sponsorship towards LGBT+ people everywhere. The visibility of supportive leaders and organisations, who champion LGBT+ talent, has a lasting and real-world impact.
